Tucked away at Half Moon Bay, but right on the water, Cerberus Beach House has uninterrupted views of Port Phillip Bay and the wreck of the HMVS Cerberus just offshore. This neighbourhood gem has a kiosk for casual snacking and a restaurant for more refined but relaxed dining.
The acclaimed casual diner at Willow Creek Vineyard, right next to Jackalope Hotel, has a hand-crafted wood-fired oven from where delectable dishes emerge, such as Wood roasted pumpkin with zaatar, sesame and herbs or Barramundi wings with almond skordalia and ‘nduja butter. The only thing to rival the food are the glorious views over the vines.
This sustainably-designed building, immersed in gardens and surrounded by bush, is hugely popular for weddings, functions and special events, but also a superb spot for lunch, high tea and dinner.
Perched high above Federation Square with views of Flinders Street Station and the Yarra River, Taxi Kitchen offers one of the best views in Melbourne.
The Merrywell’s rooftop bar is the perfect inner-city vantage point. In the evening watch the city come alive with a million twinkiling lights as you feast on top notch burgers and cheeky mac & cheese bites.
This Port Melbourne gem is a versatile space that is perfect for wining and dining. Enjoy bar snacks or a full on feast while you take in the sights of Port Melbs.
Melbourne’s cityscape is best viewed from Silks Melbourne – a sensational Chinese restaurant that is unlike anything we’ve seen before. Get here for cracking views and an even better menu.
Set picturesquely on the end of St Kilda pier with 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape this is the ideal lunch spot. With windows all around there’s not a bad seat in the house.
